For unknown reasons, Pigpen does not sing on any song during the show, although he does play keyboard.
The recording is rather distant and includes crowd chatter. In order to save batteries, the tape was stopped and started by the recorder just as songs started and ended. The beginnings and ends of most songs are therefore clipped, though this has not been noted except for the more severe cases. Sound Forge was used to normalize, pitch correct, and smooth over the cuts.

Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live on Stage" July 11, 1970 at the Fillmore East, New York City, New York, United States of America
I guess this show is the not the 11th, it's the 12th, and the 12th is the 11th...geesh...freakin' hippies...!
The music of the first 9 songs only comes out of the left channel. All you hear out of the right channel is tape hiss, until the acoustic GRATEFUL DEAD perform "A Voice From On High".
The "taper" was kind enough to be quite during most of the show; thank you, but there are a few tiny moments here and there where the silence is broken.
I'd say for an audience recording from 1970 (the stone age of recording) it's no too bad...ah, um....hmm.
I mean if you're into the DEAD you've got plenty of LOVE to make up for the less than perfect audio quality, b'cause you know the reward is a super cool, smooth, groovin' GRATEFUL DEAD concert at the Fillmore East. And face it, you ain't never gonna see or hear the DEAD at the Fillmore East ever again, unless it's a recording, and you might as well listen to this recording because it takes you back to 1970, at the Fillmore East and you're out in the audience with the NYC crowd...yee ha!
I'd like to say thanks to the taper. His heart & soul was/is in the right place.
The taper captured an ultra-rare GRATEFUL DEAD moment....the live acoustic performance of "So Sad (To Watch Good Love Go Bad) by the Everly Brothers.
You can hear how the Everly Brothers influenced the BEATLES, and how the GRATEFUL DEAD's taste in music is/was exceptional.
I recommend turning the right channel off completely for the first 9 songs and you use your EQ during playback for the entire show.
Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.
It would be nice to have a clean soundboard of this show...Garcia plays pedal steel with the NEW RIDERS of the PURPLE SAGE and it's a great performance.
One of the best live performances of the NRPS I've heard. They ain't foolin' around, they are well rehearsed and are performing as if they were in the studio. The NRPS were way ahead of their time by at least a quarter century or more.
When the electric GRATEFUL DEAD appear on stage the NYC crowd gets wild and crazy.
Bob Weir sings "Good Lovin'".
I am giving this show 3 stars for the recording and mix.
I give this show 5 stars for performance and transfer.
For Audience recordings it's a 4, because of it's historical value. So I gave it 3 stars and call it a "MUST HAVE" show.
